Marlow was just 27 years old when he passed away on July 26, 2018.
He was born March 26, 1991 in Kalispell. He was raised alongside his three older brothers Anthony, Zachary and Niles. They were not just brothers but close friends and always protected one another. “I have your back” and “no one tells mom” were their mottos.
Marlow from a very young age was organized, tidy, confident and a strong individual. Marlow was an extremely charismatic child and, as he developed, carried that charm into his adult life. Marlow’s love of skateboarding started at a young age. He was a skateboarder and obtained a great sense of achievement as he learned new tricks. Onlookers would watch in wonder and he was always willing to share his knowledge and ability. He had his skateboard with him always. Marlow attended St. Matthew’s grade school and Flathead High School and made many friends whom he loved. Quick with wit and faster yet to charm, Marlow developed a love of the Flathead Valley, his family and friends.
Grad-uating early, Marlow quickly made plans to leave his beloved hometown and join the United States Air Force. He showed unlimited potential and perseverance throughout his military career, receiving many ribbons and receiving the Air Force Achievement Medal for meritorious service. He served in both South Korea and Italy, always carrying out his duties diligently. Marlow never forgot to make lifelong acquaintances across the world’s stage. He enjoyed his stay across the sea and made many trips throughout Europe. He loved to see new places and encouraged his family and friends to join him on vacation to Italy, Austria and Germany.
Upon his honorable discharge from the Air Force, Senior Airman Marlow joyfully returned home to Kalispell. He went to Spokane and received his HVAC certifications from Northwest HVAC/R Association Training Center. Once again Marlow excelled, receiving top honors at graduation. He then returned to Kalispell and began his professional career. A year ago Marlow met the girl of his dreams who became the love of his life, Darrion.
Meeting Marlow was as intense as seeing a spark in the darkest of night. He had an inescapable sense of wonder and cleverness. Our family will always remember Marlow as our treasure as Marlow lives on in our hearts and of all those who he touched.
Marlow is survived by Darrion Behrendt, by his mother Allison (Paul) Trush-Drollinger of Kalispell, father Nick (Tavia) Moschetti of Kalispell; his brothers, Anthony and Zachary Moschetti of Kalispell, and Niles (Christal) Moschetti and their children Emilia and Rocco of Three Forks, Montana, and by stepsiblings Joe Osborne, Auttem Ross, Brandon Broadway, Danielle Trush, Brandon Trush and Paxton Trush; grandparents, Linda (Harlan) Bruns of Kalispell, Roxy (Illona) Moschetti of Boulder, Colorado, and numerous aunts, uncles and cousins.
